Tūrangawaewae – My Place
Home is not a place; it’s a feeling
Sandcast Mini Moon Necklace
Cast individually in sustainable New Zealand beach or river sand, this beautiful, organic circle necklace is made from recycled sterling silver or 9ct Alluvial Gold from New Zealand. Each necklace has it’s own unique texture reflecting the sand within which it is created. Your mini moon necklace measure approximately 7-8mm in diameter and is a full sphere. It is finished with a 45cm sterling silver (or 9ct gold) chain.
Reflecting the power and presence of the moon, this necklace was inspired by nights watching the full moon rise over the ocean. The moon pulls upon our souls just as it pulls on the very water in the oceans. These are powerful reminders of the ebb and flow of life; that all of us go through cycles and phases and that the darkness compliment the light.
This necklace features a beautiful sandcast texture which has been designed to connect you to a place, offer you a sense of belonging and remind you of all those who have come before you. Inspired by the Māori concept of tūrangawaewae, often translated as ‘a place to stand’. Tūrangawaewae are places where we feel especially empowered and connected.
